For people on the go, the amount of time we are glued to our tablets, notebooks and smart phones is outstripping the time we sleep, so it comes as no surprise to me that digital eye strain is a growing concern for travellers. With Adlens Interface Digital Eye Strain Solution there may well be salvation at hand.
Airports, airplanes, trains and cabs. 61% of adults have reported experiencing digital eye strain, also known as Computer Vision Syndrome, which is caused by sustained focus on the screens of computers, tablets, and smartphones. This exhausts eye muscles causing people to experience symptoms including dry eyes, blurred vision, eye fatigue, and headaches. it is relentless and there is no respite, so if a potential answer to this issue is offered then perhaps we need to take a serious look.
Adlens Interface digital eye strain solution is to protect our eyes from the harmful blue light emitted by digital screens through a pair of glasses containing adjustable tinted lenses. These lenses as well as filtering out 80% of harmful blue light are continuously adjustable between 0 to 2.75 dioptres. This allows us to change the power in order to focus comfortably, minimising the strain felt by our eye muscles and easing the temporary symptoms of digital eye strain.
Of course, the glasses are no replacement for prescription lenses but by adjusting each lens you are able to replicate your visionary needs during computer use.
I tried out a pair of yellow tinted glasses and after adjusting each lens, I found them surprisingly comfortable for peering at my screen for long periods. I had issues though when I tried looking down to type as the frames were not big enough to cover my line of sight, so I found that particular process very awkward and irritating.
I did however find the Adlens Interface digital eye strain solution reduced the tired feeling in my eyes I always get after a prolonged session on the computer. The yellow tint giving me a warm golden landscape which is surprisingly relaxing to look at.
So is the Adlens Interface digital eye strain solution the perfect answer for tired eyes? I am not convinced it is a long term solution, but if you are a traveller on the go, looking for something to protect your eyes from gloomy airport lounges or low light aircraft strain and help keep your eyes bright for a meeting then it is probably worth an investment.
